After entering mid way through the first half last week the Australian winger will have his run on debut for Japanese side Coca Cola West Red Sparks in tomorrow’s home game against Kobelco Steelers. The other non-Japanese player in the squad is New Zealander Tim Bateman at outside centre, with fellow kiwi Solomon King named on the bench.
For the visitors two other quality players from the land of the long white cloud: former Chiefs number 8 Matt Vant Leven and former Crusaders scrumhalf Andy Ellis.

The Steelers sit first on the ladder of Pool B with two wins out of two games, the Red Sparks made up for their narrow loss in their first game against Suntory Sungoliath with a win over NTT DoCoMo Red Hurricanes last week.

Former Wallaby Berrick Barnes has recovered form the injury that forced him out last week and will start for Panasonic Wild Knights at Yamaha in the most awaited game of group A. Júbilo sits on top of the table after two bonus points win, the Wild Knights were surprised in their first game have comprehensively beaten Kubota Spears last week.

Panasonic are captained by Melbourne Rebels hooker Shota Horie and will also have Aussie Daniel Heenan in their staring line up.
